I had to get up really early this morning in order to make it to Glacier Point in time to capture the sunrise. This was taken on 1/1/2012, which I was fortunate to get because this location is usually closed off to vehicles due to the heavy amounts of snowfall.

I recall overhearing others say this was the first time in 12 years that the roads leading to Glacier Point were open in January.
